How many handbags do you think the average woman owns? 10? Close. The average number of handbags a woman owns is seven. And, each of those seven handbags, on average, costs $120. This all according to a recent Kellogg's survey.

The survey also found that women not only keep items their handbags, some use the accessory to hid behind when they're have a "fat day." Also, 16 of the women surveyed in the poll say the handbags they carry act as a "security blanket."

Oh, and don't forget to compliment her handbag. Why? Well, 21 percent of women said when someone compliments their bag, it flatters them.

Ladies, it would be great to hear from you on this topic. What do you think? How many handbags do you have and do you ever hide behind them?
